Homemade toothpaste has been on my "Things to Try" list for a while, so I'm glad I finally did it!
I used this recipe, except that I omitted the stevia. I really like it, although you do have to get used to having no foam. I used the smaller amount of essential oils, and think it has a nice mild flavor. The recipe fit perfectly in a 3 oz. travel squirt bottle, which makes applying it to your toothbrush easy and mess-free!
I liked that the only special thing I had to buy for it was the xylitol, and I now have enough to make quite a bit more. I think that the cost probably works out to be cheaper than the toothpaste I was buying.
